SG NORTHSHORE SENIOR REPS 2020-2021
SG Northshore has partnered with St. Tammany Outreach for the Prevention of Suicide (STOPS) for this coming school year. The SG Northshore Senior Reps will take an active role in helping raise awareness for STOPS and their needs, and complete community service projects for STOPS when able.
STOPS (ST. TAMMANY OUTREACH for the PREVENTION of SUICIDE) was formed as a private non-profit organization in December of 2001. The organization is comprised entirely of volunteers who are committed to providing community programs in an effort to lower the suicide rate in the parish as well as to ameliorate the sting of the loss of a loved one to suicide. St. Tammany Parish has one of the highest suicide rates in the state and is approximately 18% above the state average.
The mission of STOPS is to reduce the incidence of suicide and its devastating aftermath in our community. By fostering prevention, intervention, and postvention resources, we seek to create a community safety net for individuals and families in crisis.
